A Face in Split Stitch

Like me, Mary Corbet loves ecclesiastical embroidery.  Today's article is not only interesting (she's talking restoration) and the image of The Virgin on the vestment is lovely, but the face is worked in light coverage split stitches.  I've never seen light coverage split stitches before, so I was riveted.  I really really really am going to have to try a face in split stitches!

Hope this is inspiring to those of you who are always looking for a great stitch for faces.
